ttcd i'ottnt.
The south wind blows the tender spires
Of the young and fragrant grass.
And. joyously, the winged choirs
Of spring-birds, sieging, pais.
Tbey pass me by nor leave me lone
Comes back their sweet refrain,
at sweet as murmur of the brook
Swollen by summer's rain.
And now 'chime in the same sweet stream,
Until I scarcely know
Wfcetber the sweeter sing the birds
Or the sparkling waves below.
A Dear the jasmin from its perch
Of treUi-ed bars droops low.
And the olden apple- tree abloom .
Drops blossoms pure as snow.
The softened bom of the early bee
A low, sweet endertone
And the constant tide of the lily-lake
With its cradled buds unblown.
The s:gh of the pine on the west hillside
The graceful boughs of the birch.
And the unmoved arms ef the constant ok
That shadows the village church.
Afar, afar behold the hills
In their regal verdure dressed,
Crowned by blue caressed by cljuds
That brood in graceful rest.
My spirit soars as do the clouds
Clings to the steadfast he ignis
Lcsgeth to know the yet unknown
Beyond the sunset lights
Tbe purple shadows steal athwart
The bright, bright shining stream ;
The swet, sweet birds are flown to rest-'
The folded roes dream.
And the spicy sweet of the yellow bloom
Of the current fills the air.
Until my eoul can only know
That earth is very fair.
There dwelt in Colifornta.souie years ago,
three friends, wi'.d fellows enough, who had
K-t-TTiingly linked their fortunes for the bet
ter or wore, and who, whatsoever their
lack, were constantly in eaeh other's cora
j.any. These ymn men were Charles Chester,
Harry Rray, and Edward Warren. They
were more btotherly than n.any brothers,
more akin than many kinsmen. True to
each other, even when women and money
were between them. Damon and Pytliia.
with a twin Damon ad.lei. For a Inns time
they had been very poor; at last fortune
tavored them. Each had a certain sum, by
no means contemptible, stowed away in the
leathern blt he wore about his waist. Each
carried a gold watch, and each w.ws a suit
of clothes supposed by himself to be the
latest htyle and choicest fa-hian. .Moreover
their revolvers were perfect; silver mount
eJ, and rejoicing in a multiplicity of bar
rels; for without these it would be quita
impossible to maintain a position in thi
quarter of the world in ary society.
How they came by these possession xv
will not inquire too particularly. They were
neither burglars nor highwayman, but dice
and betting miy have helped them to the
i.ming of their fortunes. They were not
over scrupulous, but wo'ild hare kmniked

Certainly, in their conduct to each
other they were faultlefsly honored and
airarjlouyly rencrous.
He diy, s13n after "luck" had come to
its U-t. a lett-er directed in a tremulous,
w .roan's hand t-j '"Charles Chester," was
banded to that .ernber of the trio in the
r'esenee of the other two. The young fel
l w seized it eagerly, tre it open, read it
t:,r juzh, aud, teai'ng off his belt, spread
it- contents before; him upon the tabie and
c anted it over. Having done so, he burst
into tears, and very unwi.sely and profound
iy curbed himself for extravagance, and re
i ie:cd for himseif all i-ort of ancomforta
b'e things here and hereafter, a proceeding
which seems to relieve some men extremely,
:. 'Uzh why it wou.d puzzle the unenlight
oed to deciare. Thj cause of all this, as
b: comrades soon discovered, was that his
raother had written to feim from her little
Varm in a Southern State, to tellhiui a dole
tale of sickness, death among the stock,
i.e.. and a final crash. A mortgage was a!-iu'-t
due, and, as the old people would find
it impossible t5 meet it, they would be sold
'at and lefr homeless in their age." "Lt
wlli kill your father," wrote the uiother,
' and I will die with Lim."
I did it all," said the jroao fellow, sob
bing openly. "My debts and my wild way?
encumbered them at first, and now look."
AnJ h pointed to the gold upon the ta
tle, and began his profane litany ugiin. The
mortgage was three thousand dollars, and he
bai but two thousand.
U that all?" eried .Ned Warren, haul
ing at his belt.
"Good Heaven ! What does he take me
for?" cried Harry Bray, furiously. "Five
hundred apiece and the expenses of the jour
ney are about the figure. There, go to the
old folks. We'll see about your horse while
you pack your bag.".
This set the othc. oath again ; but in a
joyful style this time. They were tramps
and bricks, and by everything he could think
of he'd do for them if there were any need
cf it.
'"Ile'J pay them back if he lived, he'd
be"d bless them ;" and so choked off into
sob again, at which they left him to recov
er, returned with a horse and a well filled
pocket fiask, and saw him set forth upon
his niision as though the "old folks" had
been their old folks also.
Tter waited for news from him, but none
came. They waited quietly at first, then
impatiently ; at last they heard this : He
had never been seen at home, or by any one
who knew him, since the day on which they
had shook hands with him. Some terrible
fate had befallen bim in the lonely places
oyer which he had journeyed alone. To doubt
him never entered their minds. They must
discover his fate, and if it were what they
supposed, avenge hiin.
So one bright morning, well mounted, well
armed, and followed by a favorite dog. A
hound who would by no means be left' be
hind, the IP 6 set forth in search of their
lost jomrade. They took the road he must
fiave taten, and asked at every tavern and
cabin for news of him. One old mats fe
tneinbered him well ; another had pointed
out the dangerous place in the road leading
past a precipice to a man of their lost friend's
description, bat at that point tbe cliie was
lost. After much travel and many inqui
ries, our comrades began to fear that they
should have paused to examine the rocks
and ravines at the foot of the precipice allu
ded to, ere they proceeded further, and de
termined to turn back and do so. They
came to this resolution about nightfall, .and
just as they reached the borders of a little
farm, which bore evidence of careful tillage.
Upon this land stood also a farm-house;
from the crevices in the shutters of which
streamed long bars of rUddy lamplight, and
whence tWeound of music was plainly heard.
It was the only dwelling within sight. ,
"We will stay here," said one friend. to
the other, "until davfn and then return."
That the house was not an inn did not
matter to either of tbem. Hospitality was
never refused is the hud at that day.
They rode boldly up to' the gate and gave
a loud halloa. In an instant the door open
ed, and thsy could see within a .sudden pan
ic in a lively dance, as all tieads turned to
see what had caused this interruption.
"Can you let us sleep here to-niaht," in
quired one of the friends, as one asks who
fear no refusal.
"Certainly, gentlemen," said a pleasant
voice. "You're welcome. You'll find a
stable there, and corn for your burses. Our
man Jack is on the floor tonight, but here's
a lantern if you'll tend to yourselves."
"All right, stranger," said Harry, "and
thank you, too."
And the two men lei their horsC: liilo a
stable, already full. Ned watered them and
secured them for tbe night, and would have
left the place at once, but that one of the
animals attracted Harry's attention. He
turned back to look bim, examined him
from head to foot, turned red and pale, and
suddenly clutched Xed's arm.
"You remember the horse we bought for
Charles Chester," he asked. i
"Yes," said Ned.
"Look at the fellow," said Harry. "Yes,
tbe very one. The star on bis forehead. the
scar on his fore-leg. the color, the height,
Ned. it's Charley's horse 1"
"It is the horse. ' s.'id Ned, slowly. "Har
ry, if Chprley had lived to go, his horse
would have gone with him."
"The owner of this animal may know all
we need to bear," said Harry. "It won't
be rood news, Ned." .,
Nel shook his heal, and sadly andsu.nly
men went toward the house. They found
the dancing at its height, and that this wa-
the home-co'minz "of the farmer's bride, a
pretty young woman with rosy cheeks and
sparkling eyes, of whom the stalwart bride
groom seemed very foed and proud. . ,
"Sit down, strangers," said an old man
near the door. "You've come Rt a merry
time, and won't f?t much attention. My
son is jest the happiest fellow out, I believe.
You see they've been waitin' quite a spell
and he had no luck, none at all, ind it seem
ed he'd got to give up ; but six mouths back
he had a streak. Wonderful ! explained it,
but I don't remember, so l.e sends for
her and me from Connecticut. She's an
orphan gal ; and as soon as her school term
was over she was teaching, ye know she
cone. This is their house-warming, and
them's the neighbors. They all like Ike.
Ike's a good fellow a real g03d fellow,
though 1 say it. Take a nip, strangers
don't be afraid of the jug. I'll fill it again.
Why, what aib your dog?"
The dog left outside was howling rather
' Wants to come in, perhaps," said Ned,
"but it mightn't bo agreeable to the la
dies." "Bring him in," said the old man; bnt
the dog would not cora.
He stood beside a r"atch of grass ih the
garden howling wofully, and scratching acd
tearing with all his might Leave the spot
ha would not, and the friends, as they saw
him, and remembered the hor?e in the sta
ble, felt the blood curdle in their veins.
"Whose horse is that with a whits scar on
his foreieg a handsome brown horse with
wondcrfnl eyes?'' whispered Harry to the
old man.
"That's my son's horse," said th old
"Where did he buy it?" asked the other.
"Don't know," said the old man, laugh
ing childishly. "Come to him with the
rest of his good luck six months ago."
Again the dog outside began to howL
Aeain tbe friends felt cold chills creep over
"Where are we to sleep?" asked Edward
f the old man. "We don't want supper
we need rest."
"I'll show you," said the old man. "The
bouse will be full to night, but you'll not
mind roughing it."
And he lei the way to an tipper room
where a rude bed was already spread.
"Just lie down here, strangers," he said.
"There's a blanket, if you're cold, and there's
a candle. Good night."
And he left them. But not asleep. The
to men had sought solitude that they might
commune with each "other. Yet no they
could only say, "What does this mean?"
They had said it in as many ways a dozen
times, when Harry, by accident, lifted his
eyes f o a peg in the rough wall. On it hung
something which riveted bis gaze with hor
ror. Yet it was an object quite common
and innocent in itself only a pair of brown
saddle-bags, rather new in Appearance, and
with the letters 'C. C." on the side.
"LooS I" he cried. "Look, Edward 1"
The other, in turn, stood niute for a time,
then gave a spring toward the peg, tore the
bags down and opened tbem. .Within they
found garments they knew their friend had
worn, an empty belt, and the daguerreotype
of a young lady of whom they had known
him to be very
"His horse in the stable, his saddle-bags
and belt here, the dog howl'mg on the turf
without what does it all mean?" cried
Harry again;
And Xed answered, "We shall soon see,"
and strode in to the great room where the
dancing ws goiog on, and np to the bride
groom, standing at the head of a Yirgicia
reel, with his bride's hand in his own.
"Stop a bit," cried Ned, furiously. "We
have a question to ask. Whose horse is
that in the stable the brown one with a
star on the forehead?"
"Mine," said the farmer turning deadly
. "And the saddle-bags tip stairs, marked
C. C. ?"
The farmer turned paler.
"Gentlemen," he said, "wait until morn
ing and t will explain everything."
"We choose to learn the truth for our
selves," said the young man fiercely.
"Yon had a mysterious streak of luck sii
months ago, I understand from the old man
there," said Harry Bray.
. "Not very mysterious," said the farmer.
"I went to the digging and fell in with a
nugget, as for the horse I found him and
the saddle-bags, too. If you know to whom
they belong, he'a welcome to them."
"They belong to the man yon murdered
tor bis money, and buried in the ground
yonder, where the dog stands howling."
cried Harry Bray. "We are going to dig
there, and Heaven help any man who hin
ders us!"
."Dig whereyou choose," said the farmer.
"I aui too well known here to be afraid of
two tuadujjn. Zmurdera man II There
I am a fool to care for such words ! Dig,
confound you 1 Many a horse strays in the
wcods ; many a man found one, as weil as L
Come neighbors, tet tbe fiddles going, and
let the madmen dig."
And the s'pndes sank into the tnrf, an.l
the terrified guests gathered around, and
the bride clung to her husband s arm, and
the music was duiub, aud the dog's long
melancholy howl 6 fled the air; and, at last,
just as the rising moon flung her yellow
beams upon the new dug earth, Ned War
ren cried in an awful voice, "He is here !"
And the two friends lifted from the grave
that which had been a man, with long
death:grown black hairfiilliug down over his
shoulders. , t . . i . -
He had been shot in the head and turo'
the heart, and there was no doubt in either
mind that it was the body of their lost
friend. The farmer seemed petrified with
horror. The bride fell into a death-like
swoon, the guests fell away from their host,
and looked at him1 askance. The father tore
his hair and pleaded for mercy. But there
was b mercy in any heart there. The
avengers were all powerful. The great room
adorned for festival and mirth was turned
into a court-room. The "romen tVrcst from
it, the men remained. On the raised stand
where the fiddlers had been seated, Harry
Bray now took bis seat id the character of
Judge Lynch. The jury vras named, the
mock trial hurried on, the accused called
upon to answer. He plead not guilty. He
denied any knowledge of that a grave ay
near his home. He persisted in the repeti
tion of the statement that he had found the
horse and the saddle-bags, but he adm!ttd
there had been money in tbe latter.
He stood before them looking very unlike
a murderer, calling on them for justice
calling on God to witneos the truth bf his
words ; speaking of his young w lie aud bis
old fatiier; bidding his neighbors remember
that he had never done them any wrong.
Judge Lynch has no mercy, no compas
sion, belief in the possibility of false aocu
sation;an J this Judge Lynch was an avenger
of blood. Then was what the end of such
a trial generally is ; tbs sentence, the awfnl
one of dosth ; and in leas than tbree hours
from the moment on which they first
saw the bridegroom Lappy and blithe, stan
din; at the head of a gay country daoce,bi
body dangleU a horrible slht to look upon,
from the branch of a tree that shaddowed
what all believed his victim's grave.
When all was over they found the old
father dead in his chair beside tbe fire-place,
and found among the women a hopeless
gibbering maniac, whom tbey would hardly
have known for the rosy-cheeked young
They were revenged, bat at what cost?
The two men returned to their home, sad
dened and altered, and yet not remorseftil,
for they had but avenged their eowrade,end
this, to tbem, seemed common justice. The
legal code of border life had been adhered
to ; but for the last look at tbe mad bride
they could scarcely have recognized how aw
ful all this had been. They lived on togeth
er, friends still, speaking of Charley, and
fancying that in some other world be might
even know how weil they had revenged
themselves upon bis murderer.
And so five years passed. And one day
the two went together into a coffee-room
kept by an old Frenchman in the city of
San Francisco, and. being in low spirits, out
of luck, and with slender purses, were sit
ting disconsolately over their meal, when a
hand came down on each shoulder, and a
voice cried, "Found at last! I've searched
the city for you. Heaven bless you, dear
boys 1"
It was Charles Chester, handsome and
cheerful, well-dressed, and well-to-do look
ing Charles Chester, whose murderer they
believed themselves to have lynched years
And this was the story he told them, won
dering at their palid looks and awe-struck
silence the while : "Tbe money he had
with him being in gold and heavy for his
belt, he placed it in his saddle-bags, and had
Completed many miles of his journey, when,
near a new and apparently deserted dwel
ling, he saw a man lying, groaning terribly.
Dismounting, he assisted him, and found
that he was a traveler who had been set up
on by ruffians, and robbed and wounded.
He had crawled to this house for assistance,
but found il empty, and now lay dying in
the road. Charles Chester had done his
best for the poor fellow, without avaiL. He
died in his arms just as the sun went down;
and by its fading light, he had dug a grave
on the turf before the empty house, and
there buried bim. There was no one in
sight, and his fears of an attack upon him
self warned him to harry on ; but when the
last sad rites over, and he turned to remount
bis horse, it was gone. Tbe animal bad es
caped into the woods, and, with night com
ing on, all search seemed hopeless. The
money in the saddle-bags rendered tbe loss
a maddenic; one. He threaded his way
through the underbrush, calling his steed
by name, uutil total darkness hid all objects;
and, at last, striking his head violently
against a tree, he fell to the ground insensi
ble. When he came to himself he wis ly
ing in a wagon, to which he had been con
veyed by a kindly German who' could speak
no English: In falling he had broken bis
arm, and was very weak and ill. Before he
was able to communicate bis story to any
one, all hope cf recovering either horse or
iiioney bad deserted him. He was in de
spair, lie couIU not assist bis parents, xo
return to his friends would be to cast him
self upon their bounty. This be would hot
do ; and his struggles had been great at first,
but tbey were over now. He had done well
by "the old folks," and had returned to pay
his debts and resumw'liis friendship with
his old friends,"
He was with them be lived. The far
mer had doubtless told the truth. He did
not know why the turf had grown so green
;n t. i;lo yard, and he ESQ round the
horse at large in the woods, and knew noth
iiig of the rider ; but the thing had been
done and could not be undone the dead
brought to life, or tbe maniac's mind re
stored, or the blood washed from the mur
derer's bands.
Of course they told their story, and of
course they believed their friendshipas warm
as ever; but it was not so. They never
would meet each other again as of yore.
The two could not forget the man they
bad lynched to avenge their friend, and
doubted the propriety of returning alive
and merry to trouble tneir consciences,
which were quiet enough so long as be
seemed dead. As for Charles Chester, he
cleared the murdered man's memory among
Kis neighbors, and saw the wild eyed, white
faced woman, who only shook ber head and
moaned and muttered when be spoke to
her; and then be too was conteut to say
good-bye to those who had done the deed
albeit for his sake.
So the three pirted, each going his own
way ; for thus it seemed easier to forget the
deed done by JuJe Lynch and bis court
upon the day of the bride's coming home.
Signs and Tokens. The Gridiron. To
take down the gridiron from the nail where
it is hanging, with the left hand, Is a sign
rhnt therp will be a broil in the kitchen. .
The Mirror. If a mirror is broken it is a
sign that a good-looking lias will be missed
in that house.
Pocket Book. To lose a pocket book
containing greenbacks is unlucky.
Nails. If a woman cuts' her nails every
Monday it is lucky for her husband
Roosters. If you hear a rooster crow
when you are in bed and the clock strikes a
few times at the same instant, it is a sign
of mo(u'rnin.
An itching car. It you have an itching
ear, tickle your nose hnd you will have an
itcbiog there, and ill luck will be averted.
A young lady once observed, "When I
go to the thestre, I am very careless of my
dress, as the audience are too attentive to
tbe play to observe' my wardrobe ; but when
I go to church I am very particular in my
outward appeafance. as most people go there
to see how their neighbors dress and deport
One of the most important female quali
ties is sweetness of temper. Heaven did
not give to women insinuation and persua
sion in order to be surly ; it did not make
them weak ia order to be imperious ; it did
not give them a sweet voice to be employed
in scoHing.
At New York a short time ago, a person
applied to tne proper court to be divorced
from bis wife because she would persist in"
putting her cold feet against bim when
in bed.
"Money makes the man." Perhaps it
does ; but Punch thinks it particularly nec
essary that man should make money first.

The Kidneys are two in number, sitnated at thei
upper part ot the loin, surrounded by fSt. and
consisting of three parti, vis: the Anterior, the
Interior, and the Exterior.
Tbe anterior absorbs Interior consists of ti
sues or veins, which serve as a deposit for the
urine and convey it to the exterior. Tbe exte
rior is e conductor also, terminating in a single
tube, and called the Ureter. The ureters are con
nected with the bladder.
The bladder is composed of various coverings
or tissues, divided into parts, vis : the Upper, tk
Lower, ths Nervous, and the Mucous. The upper
expels, the lower retains. Many have a desire to
urinate without the ability, others urinate with
out the ability to retain. This frequently occur
in children.'
To cure these affections, we must bring into ae
tioa tbe muscles, which are engaged in their va
rious functions. If they ere neglected, Gravel or
Dropsy may ensue.'
The reader must also be made aware, that bow
ever slight may be the attack, it as sure to affee
the bodily health and mental powers, as our flesh
and blood are supported from these sourees.

H. T, Helbbold, Druggist:
Deab Sib: I nave been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I hare used various
medicinal preparations, and fceen under the treat
ment of the most eminent Physicians, experietv
eiEg but little relief
Having seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family pbysieian U
regard to asing your Extract Baehu.
I did this because t had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found tbem worthless,
and some quite injurious,' in fact, I despaired of
ever getting well, acd determined to use no rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredient.
Itwas this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of buchu ,
cube be and juniper berries, it occurred to me and
iny physician as an excellent combination, and,'
a its, his advice, after an examination of the arti
cle, and consulting again with the druggist, I
concluded to try it. I commenced it use about
eight month ago, at which time I was confined
to my room. From the first bottle I was astonish
ed and gratified at the beneficial effect and after
using it three weeks was able to walk out. I felt
neeh like writing you a full statement of my ease
at that time, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to'
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure;
knowing then it would be of greater value to you
and mora satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a cure is affected
a!er using the remedy Tor five month.
I have not used any now for three months, and
feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Tour Buchu being devoid ot any unpleasant
tute and odor, a nice tenie and invigorator of the
system. I do not mean to be without it whenever
occasien may require it use in such affection.
